Maurice R. Greenberg Conference Center at Yale University
New Haven, Connecticut
United States

The Greenberg Conference Center (GCC) is set apart from other venues by delivering nearly 10,000 square feet of unique, dynamic, modern spaces that can host a variety of multidimensional conferences. Its amphitheater has held international conferences, facilitated executive leadership forums, and has established itself as a prestigious, exclusive, and intimate facility, specializing in sophisticated accommodations. The structure, designed by the firm of Robert A. M. Stern, former Dean of the Yale School of Architecture, opened in the summer of 2009. As a “green” building, the Center’s design, construction, and operations conform to benchmarks set by the U.S. Green Building Council and is LEED Gold certified.

“I have been asked to be the Director of a small conference center at Yale. While I believe I have a “good gut” for how to make this small conference center a thriving profit center for the university, I wanted to know what other like-minded conference centers do as standard practice. Additionally, we want to open the conference center up for external use and needed new ways of promoting our lovely space. IACC through the application and vetting process began to help me hone in on what is important. As soon as we became members, we sent a staff person to an event in April and she came back energized and implemented many of the ideas that she saw at the conference. We look forward to being part of this community and participating in the many ways that they provide.” Kate Vieillard, Director
